    Hi everyone,
    I am new to this forum. But not to photography. I went on a 2 week backpacking trip through yosemite and when i got home i discovered an issue. I am having a puzzling time with my canon DIGI Rebel XT. It has decided to overexpose everything. I am running my exposure compensation at -1 and they are still overexposed. I have no idea what is going on. Any Ideas?:
    Here is the setup:
    Canon Digital Rebel XT
    Canon 18-55 f3.5-5.6 EF-S USM

    It is driving me nuts!!! below is a couple of samples, u can see it is Drowning out my color!:

    Ummm both of those look fine here. Check your monitor settings, or better yet print one out.

    i look at them and they look ok. but if you were there it seems like the color is lacking. I had the exposure at -1 on these pictures. Actually, i have this set on every picture. i guess i just want to know if there is a way to adjust the light sensor on the camera so what what the exposure compensation is -2/3 or -1. The instruction manual doesnt say if there is a setting for this or not. i think the light sensor is a little dumb.
